Question how to quote messages

Hello to everyone!

This isn't a question of grammar or language but I thought this might be the right place to ask for technical advice I am not a pro with forums and I have a problem with quoting messages from other people.I have done it wrong twice.Can anyone explain to me how to proceed, please?

or end of the quote.

To get here I clicked on under your post which brings up the message input screen with the quoted message between two sets of square brackets [] ..... [] You can edit the quoted post but don´t touch the bracketed bits.

If you want to put some text in a quote box you can add the start and finish codes yourself - type QUOTE in the first brackets and /QUOTE in the last ones.

Quote:
like this
When you get the hang of it you can also quote several posts at the same time using the symbol one or more times and finishing with the last one as a normal quote

Right then - over to you to have a go!

Smile I did it!

It worked! That was very easy in fact and your explanations were very clear. I think I had forgotten to keep the second bracket at the end or something like that...Many thanks again!
